Workout Wednesday – Boosting Your Butt

by DavalosMcCormack on April 22, 2009

Does my butt look big on this blog?

It’s a question no one ever wants to be asked because the truth is, if you have to ask you probably already know the answer.  Of course not darling. It’s  pert and perfect.

But if you do want to improve your bottom line, here’s a couple of exercises that can have your toosh in tip top shape.

The easiest way to buff up your butt is simply by walking. Walking activates your glutes (that’s latin for buns) and hamstrings. And if you want to make it even more effective then walk up hills or staircases – that really builds up strength and endurance in your nethermost region.

After you have done that for a while and want to take it to the next level then sprinting is a great way to push those muscles even harder, build them up even faster and get a great workout at the same time.

If you look at sprinters you’ll notice they all have one thing in common, a tremendous bottom. That’s because those are the muscles that power them down the track.

Now, you don’t have to be a budding Olympian to get the same benefits. All you have to do is do some short sprints.

Next time you are out walking pick an object about 30 yards away and then run as fast as you can till you get there. Walk until you have got your breath back. Then pick another object about 30 yards away and run as fast as you can till you get to that.

At first the “fast as you can” bit may not seem very fast but don’t worry,  your bottom will definitely let you know afterwards that it’s hard a workout.

The more you do this the faster you will be able to sprint. That’s when you start choosing objects 40 yards away, then 50 etc.  As you increase the distance you will also increase your strength and stamina.

It’s a terrific exercise for the whole body. And even though you may not be able to see it, everyone else will be admiring the results!
